Letters: Theatre dame will be missed

Terry Barber was an important member of the Sooke Harbour Players

The members of Sooke Harbour Players (formerly known as Stage West Players) would like to express our condolences to the family of Dame Terry Barber.

Terry was one of the founding members of Stage West Players and the most faithful supporter of local theatre in Sooke. Terry wrote sparkling reviews for many years for our shows, was a director and mentoring director. She never missed an annual general meeting where she always made a generous donation to the society. After Terry’s hearing began to wane she would ask for a script copy for our current show and attend rehearsals in order to read the script through, just so that when she purchased a ticket to see the show she would be able to come and enjoy the action.

Terry you will be missed, but we know your shining spirit will be with us when the curtain goes up on our next opening night.
